CVD Reports First Quarter 2019 Results

Sponsored by Businesswire

CVD Equipment Corporation (NASDAQ: CVV),
a leading provider of chemical vapor deposition systems and materials,
today announced its first quarter 2019 financial results.

CVD first quarter 2019 revenue was $3.5 million as compared to $9.2
million in the first quarter of 2018, a decrease of $5.7 million or
62.0%. Net loss for the first quarter was $2.2 million, or $0.33 per
diluted share, as compared to a net profit of $.6 million or $.09 per
diluted share in the first quarter of 2018.

The Company has received new orders of approximately $6.5 million in the
first quarter of 2019 and order backlog at March 31, 2019 was
approximately $6.0 million. The Company’s return to profitability is
dependent upon, among other things, the receipt of new equipment orders,
the ramp up of the materials business and managing planned expenditures
and operating expenses. Thomas McNeill, Chief Financial Officer, said
“We anticipate the cost containment measures we have been implementing
should align our expenses to our order rates, thereby reducing future
operating losses and should return the Company to profitability by the
first quarter of 2020.”

“While 2018 was a difficult year for CVD, the Company has accelerated
its focus on the materials business. During 2018, the Company invested
$2.5 million in building improvements and machinery related to CVD
Materials, $.4 million in the first quarter of 2019 and other materials
facility related expenses. With the operations at our new materials
facility coming online during the third quarter of 2019, and our
continued investment in building improvements and machinery we will
enhance our marketing efforts by showcasing our operations to new and
existing customers. In addition, we will complete the move of our
Mesoscribe operations from California by the end of May 2019, with
integration to be completed by July 2019. The consolidating of
Mesoscribe operations into our materials facility should enhance our
ability to execute on operational improvements, as well as reduce
operational costs. The expanded materials operations will enhance our
capabilities in providing i) corrosion resistant coatings through our
Tantaline® subsidiary for medical, pharma, oil and gas applications, ii)
sensors through our MesoScribe™ subsidiary for defense, aerospace and
turbine applications, and iii) through our CVD Materials subsidiary for
carbon composite materials, medical coatings, electronic substrate
materials and further expansion into other coatings for defense,
aerospace, medical, and industrial applications,” said Leonard
Rosenbaum, President and Chief Executive Officer.
